Proffessor Crazy

We are crazy, aren,t we?
We are are all so very crazy
And so pray I, that we may be more crazy
That we may proclaim truth in such lucidity 
And when we are crazier
Then we shall live life like one 
A truthful crazy - life is worth living 
Than a bouyant life full of lies
I'll rather eat a bone in peace 
Than a fight over a roasted whole ox 
I'll rather run 100 miles to stay out of trouble
Than run 10 miles to get into one 
Leave me, and let me live my lovely - crazy life 
Even if it be on a leaf.

    8th line ..Rather than a bouyant life full of lies..and perhaps "sooner" in the next line so as not to repeat a word? I so agree with the content and spirit of your verse!!! Light & Love

    Nicely done. I am on the corner or normal and abnormal and got to decide which way to go. Keep writing. Sara

    Hey Gbenga! Very true what you have written here... so accurate..."A truthful crazy-life is worth living". Lies must be the product of insecurities. They'd only lead to confusion and more lies. Way more fun being crazy...at least one is more level-headed in a somewhat tilted way.:) Best to you....blessings to you and yours! Mikki
